That’s what I smell in Massachusetts:
The Twitter account for the nonpartisan District of Columbia Board of Elections and Ethics posted a link to an editorial criticizing Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown on Thursday, an act the government agency tells Yahoo News was an accident.
The link directed followers to a piece on the left-leaning Talking Points Memo website headlined “Really, Scott Brown?” that attacks him for bringing up a controversy surrounding the Native American heritage of his challenger, Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren, at a recent debate.
“We would not have put that up there,” Board of Elections spokeswoman Karen Raper said when informed of the Twitter post. “I don’t know how it got there.”
Anthony Weiner’s toaster could not be reached for comment.
